Rocky inks Miles City roundball star
BILLINGS, January 20, 2015 –Rocky Mountain College women’s head basketball coach Wes Keller has announced the signing of Custer County High School (Miles City, Mont.) standout Alecia Chamberlin to an NAIA letter of intent.
Chamberlin, a 5-foot-10 senior forward, is currently averaging 15 points, six rebounds, and nearly five steals a game for this season’s edition of the Cowgirls.
Coach Keller is excited about the addition of Chamberlin and believes she will become a solid player for the Battlin’ Bears.
“Alecia is a quality person and student,” said Keller, who is in his first season as the head coach. “We like her length and athleticism.”
Keller believes Chamberlin’s best position will be as a small forward for the Bears. “She has a high basketball IQ and knows how to score,” he added.
Chamberlin was named to the Eastern A All-Conference team as a sophomore. Due to an injured knee that required surgery, she was unable to compete her junior sports season.
Chamberlin also starred on the volleyball court for three seasons, earning All-Conference this past season.
Chamberlin is the daughter of Kanyon and Jennifer Chamberlin, and plans to study health and wellness.
